The Forest: My Review

Ah, The Forest is a game that took me ages to play although it was requested ages ago with a few people to play it together and it took me ages to wait until it went on sale before I bought it.

Originally I was going to record this for Playing Games with Snat but it did not work out for some reason I would like to thank Dianna, Kim and an unnamed person for playing this from start to end.

Pay it forward sucks

When it comes to the culture of the United Kingdom they tend to be an “America Lite” and import annoying things that don’t go anywhere such as tipping but one thing I am noticing lately is the “pay it forward” queue.

For those that do not know and you likely won’t it is when someone goes to a store and buys something and then say that they are buying for the person behind them who is then expected to buy for the person behind them and thus forming a chain and it sucks.

Rimworld: My Review

Rimworld is a game that is hard to define as many would tell you it is a colony builder, war crime simulator or a simple base builder game but it is none of them – it is a storytelling game where you are playing it more to see how it ends and to help guide to an outcome you want while the storyteller does everything it can to fuck you over.

Final Fantasy XIV: My Review

For this review, I am using the term Final Fantasy XIV for the base game (A Realm Reborn) and the following expansions: Heavensward, Stormblood and Shadowbringers. I am not reviewing Endwalker, nor am I reviewing the original game.

Ah, Final Fantasy XIV an online RPG that I have played for many years has finally come around for a review. I have decided it is time to do my review due to how Endwalker will be finishing the overall story arc.

In case you do not know Final Fantasy XIV is an MMO based in the land of Eorzea where you play as an adventurer that has travelled to one of the three city-states and from here on you get involved in the local politics, join a group called the Scions of the Seventh’s Dawn, a local militia group and ultimately end up becoming the Warrior of Light who fights against pretty much divine beings over the many expansions it has. As with every review, I am not going to talk about the story as I leave it mostly spoiler-free but there is a free trial you can enjoy which goes up to level 60 and includes Heavenward.
